50 Healthy Breakfast Ideas – Easy Breakfast Ideas For Mornings


Morning person or not, the earliest part of the day can be hectic. I mean, you just woke up, you’re thinking about the million things you need to get done, and you somehow have to feed yourself, too.

Even if you’re not a breakfast person, you should consider making a nutritious meal happen in the morning, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. Your mom was right when she said breakfast is the most important meal of the day, even more so when it comes to losing weight, according to Amanda Baker Lemein, RD.

Why? Because it’s best to front-load your caloric intake by eating more food in the first half of your day. This way, your body will be burning those all day calories before hitting the hay (your metabolism slows down while you sleep). Skipping breakfast also ups your chances of snacking later in the day to make up for those missed morning calories.

So, eating breakfast is important, but what you eat for breakfast matters too. “For a breakfast to be sustaining and healthy it needs to be balanced with some protein, fat, and fiber,” says Lemein. (Think: a veggie omelet with cheese and a side of fruit or toast.)

Variety will also help you stick to a morning meal schedule—and keep things not-boring. Not sure where to start? Here are 50 (yup, 50) delicious, healthy recipes from bloggers and nutritionists to get you started.
